Many want to be be wed in nearby Glacier Park. You must apply for special use permits for Glacier Park or any other city or county parks in the state. Add to that any processing fees as much as $100. Then they will notify you if you are or are not accepted. Lots to consider: date, alternative date; locations, alternative locations; number of participants. Are your plans for the ceremony only?
